- Tracer Shock – Advice
Need some advice from all the SingletrackWorld Tracer1 riders out there.
It’s shock service (RP23 2010) time and I have come up with a few options, need some advice on the way forward:
1. Kashima Upgrade
2. PUSH upgrade
3. Swap it out for something a little more plush, say an ISX6.
I ride everything from the Alpujarras(Spain), Lake district to the local muddy woods.
The stock RP23 does blow through it’s travel sometimes and it does feel an bit harsh over the smaller stuff.
I suppose at the end of the day it’s down to the depth of wallet, but would like to improve the rear end to match the Kashima 36floats up front.
Opinions guys much appreciated.

i ran mine with the ISX6, best thing i ever did, much more plush and active compared to the rp23, which felt very wooden and used to blow through it’s travel… but then i’m probably on the heavier side at 16+ stone
took me a while to get my head around setting the isx6 up though, but once i found the sweet spot, it blow the rp23 out the water, it really comes into it’s own on the fast rough downhill stuff
here’s some helpfull info on itPosted 6 years ago
cheers for the advice guys
Had a search over on mtbr, they seem to think the isx6 is the way to go, closely followed by those with deep wallets going for the CCDB Ti coil.
If I’m going to stick with RP23, and there are threads singing it’s praises if you get it tuned correctly, is just that and get it tuned.
A Kashima and/or PUSH upgraded isn’t really going to add much more over a tuned OEM shock from a few I’ve spoken to.
If i remember I’ll post an update on how it turns out.
